This was lovely accommodation, we caught the train to Penrith and a bus to Keswick. We walked to the Accommodation from the bus stop/centre of town, while it was a little further than expected it was a pleasant walk. We got around to places on foot we wanted to see or start from. Some great restaurants and good recommendations by... More

We stayed here for two nights, booked the hotel on a TripAdvisor related site. The hotel is very well maintained, immaculate really. Malcolm does an excellent job, he was there to greet us as we drove in, showed us where to park on their site, carried our bags to our room and answered our questions. Our room was modern and...

My husband and I have just returned from two nights bed & breakfast at The Lairbeck Hotel. We booked after doing some research and reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor. It really deserves the Excellence Award 2014. We had a lovely stay. Malcolm was welcoming when we checked in and although we only met Jennifer on check out, we... More

This hotel is a beautiful Victorian house, full of period charm. The rooms are in keeping with the house, with well-equipped modern en-suite. The ambiance is peaceful, exceptionally clean and the staffs are all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was just brilliant nothing was too much trouble, an excellent start to the day. The hotel is situated perfectly for... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and wish it could have been longer. We were welcomed very warmly by Malcolm and Jennifer and our room was spacious, had a good view of the hills and, most importantly, was spotlessly clean (as was the rest of the hotel so far as we could see). This owners of this... More

We arrived much later than expected for our two night stay at Lairbeck but were greeted cheerily at the door and the man carried our case to the room for us. The room was spacious and comfortable with a lovely big en suite but could really do with a new lick of paint I think, their appeared to be a... More

When they knew I was leaving early for a walk on Sat am (before breakfast served) they offered to make me up a take out breakfast which was a kind.

We stayed at Lairbeck as a base for a 4 day walking holiday, and proved to be an excellent for this kind of holiday. Don't be put off by the rather dated entrance and lounge, the hotel is set-up as a modern B&B hotel. The room we stayed in was a little small, but perfectly adeqaute, it had a modern... More
